3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled in Sept. 2011, drank in Mar. 2012; could attribute to mild flavors
S: gold color, slight haze, solid collar, thick lacing
A: very light smell, not much going on, but there is a faint sweetness, kind of like a creamy butterscotch
T: very mild bitterness, slightly sweet at the beginning, dries out at the end, medium finish
O: this is a good beer, but not a lot going on. I'm afraid the "fresh" hops are no longer fresh

Dark gold. Nose is small with a hint of stone fruit and grass. Great mouthfeel. Finish is singing to me. The hops are crisp and well defined. Clean grass and underripe peaches. Very nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells of crisp citrus, nice hops, then thick and syrupy grapefruit. Pours an orangey copper color with big white head and floaters in the column. Tastes of green plant like hops and balanced out by malt presence. Nasal Hops.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great grassy fresh hop aroma. Moderate bitterness. Perfect balance of maltiness and hoppyness to create a dangerously drinkable beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured deep gold & coppery with a strong, sustained head. Nose of grapefruit and fresh cut grass. Initial taste of wood, pine & grapefuit finishing with a alcohol heavy, tangy warming feel. This beer is anything but subtle. Frankly, Iím surprised the IBUís & alcohol content arenít higher. I love it, nevertheless.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear orange with white, fluffy head. Aroma is not really in your face, but you do get some of that hoppy, grassy, citrousy smell. Taste is really clean and fresh, grassy again but well balanced. Palate is very smooth, nicely carbonated. I really enjoyed this beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours copper in color with a nice creamy looking head. Smells mildly hoppy and mildly malty. Taste is a nice blend of hoppy and caramel malt. No real bitter finish that I can find personally, tastes pretty sweet in the end. A very easy drinking beer, not really special but very nicely made. I enjoyed it it pretty well.
